Belly Fat More Deadly Than Obesity

November 14, 2019


THE NEW STUDY INDICATES THAT
BMI DOES NOT MEAN MUCH, BUT WHAT DOES MEAN A LOT IS WHERE
YOUR FAT IS STORED. THERE IS A STUDY DONE BY
RESEARCHERS IN CANADA, WHAT THEY DID IS THEY LOOKED AT THE
RESPONDENTS WHO HAD A BMI SCORE, AND THOSE WHO HAD FAT
DEPOSITS MOSTLY IN THEIR MID SECTION.
HERE IS WHAT THEY FOUND. ” WE FOUND THAT THE GROUP OF
PATIENTS THAT ACTUALLY HAVE THE HIGHEST RISK OF DYING WERE
PRECISELY THE PATIENTS WHO HAD NORMAL BMI, SO THESE ARE
PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT NECESSARILY HEAVY FOR THEIR HEIGHT, BUT
THEY ARE CENTRALLY OBESE.”>>BEING A CENTRALLY OBESE
AMERICAN DOESN’T FEEL GOOD.>>”RESEARCHERS HAVE LONG
SUSPECTED THE BODY MASS INDEX, OR BMI, THAT TELLS YOU
HOW APPROPRIATE YOUR WEIGHT IS TO YOUR HEIGHT ISN’T A GOOD
MEASURE, PARTICULARLY FAT THAT ACCUMULATES IN THE BELLY AND
WITHIN ABDOMINAL ORGANS AND LEADS TO INFLAMMATION, GLUCOSE
INTOLERANCE AND OTHER COMPLICATIONS THAT INCREASE
THE RISK OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE AND TYPE II DIABETES.” IT’S INCREDIBLE BECAUSE IF YOU
ARE CONSIDERED OVERWEIGHT ACCORDING TO YOUR BMI, YOU
HAVE THE PEAR SHAPE. AS LONG AS YOU DON’T HAVE THE
MAJORITY OF YOUR FAT IN YOUR MIDSECTION YOU COULD BE
MUCH HEALTHIER THAN SOMEONE WHO HAS A NORMAL BMI, BUT HAS
ALL THE FAT IN THEIR STOMACH.>>THIS STORY IS AN ABSOLUTE
DISASTER FOR ME. I AM CENTRALLY OBESE. MY ARMS ARE FINE, I HAVE A
ROCKHARD ASS, MY THIGHS ARE FANTASTIC ñ>>IT WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN.>>ñ YOU HAVE SEEN MY GUNS FROM
TIME TO TIME ON THE SHOW.>>HOW DID THIS TURN INTO A
VANITY PROJECT FOR YOU?>>BUT THE MIDSECTION
COULD USE WORK. SO ALL MY FAT IS STORED IN MY
STOMACH WHICH IS SUPER UNHEALTHY. THAT IS JUST THE WAY MY BODY IS.>>THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO
IN TERMS OF HOW FAT IS STORED IN YOUR BODY. THE THING THAT SUCKS IS THAT
THERE IS A MISCONCEPTION THAT IF YOU WORK OUT A SPECIFIC PART OF
YOUR BODY THEN YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT IN THAT
PART OF YOUR BODY. NO, IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. I
HAVE THE SAME BODY TYPE AS YOU. IF I WERE TO GAIN WEIGHT, IT
GOES IMMEDIATELY TO MY MIDSECTION. LET ME GIVE YOU THE NUMBERS, FOR
A MAN WITH CENTRAL OBESITY AND NORMAL BMI, THE MORTALITY
RISK WAS DOUBLE THAT OF THOSE WHO WERE OVERWEIGHT OR
OBESE BASED ON BMI ALONE. FOR WOMEN WITH CENTRAL
OBESITY AND NORMAL BMI, THE MORTALITY RISK WITH NEARLY 1.5
TIMES GREATER THAN FOR THOSE WITH A PROBLEMATIC BMI WITHOUT
FAT CONCENTRATED IN THE MIDDLE.>>WE’RE NOT SAYING THERE IS
NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT YOUR BODY FAT. WHAT WE’RE SAYING IS THERE IS
NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT WHERE YOUR BODY STORES FAT. FOR SOME PEOPLE IT STORES FAT
PROPORTIONATELY, FOR SOME IT STORES IT IN THE CENTER SO
THAT IF YOU GAIN WEIGHT YOU GAIN IT IN THE CENTER WHICH
IS TWICE AS DANGEROUS. THAT IS JUST THE LUCK
OF THE DRAW. SO, YOU HAVE TO WORKOUT
HARDER AND EAT LESS. BEING IGNORANT OF THE RISK
DOES NOT MAKE IT GO AWAY. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT THE
REALITY IS, AND THEN IT IS YOUR CHOICE WHAT YOU DO. I WORK OUT A DECENT AMOUNT BUT I
AM STILL HITTING THE BANANA CREAM PIES. I AM LIVING DANGEROUSLY.
